Just out of curiosity, if you, as a parent or legal guardian, received a letter from your child’s school saying they are not feminine enough how would you react? Would you encourage her to do what makes her happy or that it’s best to go along with society.?
I’m asking because a local girl was sent home with a letter from her private Christian school stating that she should dress and act more like a girl. As a self professed tomboy, I take issue with this. This 8 year old girl who likes to wear her hair short, t-shirts and sneakers and enjoys collecting baseball cards and coins is told she is not feminine enough. The school also stated that she is a disruption because the other kids don’t know if she’s a boy or a girl. If I remember correctly when I was 8 years old, I could care less if you were a boy or a girl.
